Eprosartan Dosage

Your healthcare provider will follow certain guidelines when determining your dosage of eprosartan. For example, factors that may affect your dose include other medical conditions you have, other medications you are taking, and how you respond to eprosartan. The typical recommended range is between 400 mg and 800 mg total each day.

An Introduction to Your Dosage of Eprosartan

The dose of eprosartan mesylate (Teveten®) your healthcare provider recommends will vary, depending on a number of factors, including:
 
  • Your blood pressure
  • How you respond to the medication
  • Other medications you are taking
  • Other medical conditions you may have.
 
As is always the case, do not adjust your dosage unless your healthcare provider specifically tells you to do so.
 

Eprosartan Dosing for High Blood Pressure

The usual dose of eprosartan for most people when beginning treatment for high blood pressure is 600 mg once daily. Your healthcare may adjust this amount, if necessary. The typical recommended dosing range is between 400 mg and 800 mg total per day.
 
Eprosartan is normally given once a day in the beginning of treatment. If, however, once-daily dosing does not control blood pressure over the entire course of the day, the medication may be given twice daily.
